What a sad year for us all. First the loss of my daddy and now my Uncle Tommy!
What a special person he was!!! Not many childhood memories without him in it
He was my roller coaster riding partner and so many laughs we had. We went to all the theme parks and he would have to promise me the roller coaster did not have any loops!!! He would hold me so tight going down the hills and we would come off just laughing! We also spent so many weekend nights while dad and Tommy was fixing or working on something and drive back over the mountain in the middle of the night.
I will cherish those memories forever. RIP Uncle Tommy until we meet again I love you!!! I love too Aunt Thelma and Greg!!! Im always a phone call away!!

Thelma, Greg & Family,
We were so sorry to hear about the passing of Tommy. I know you all will miss him greatly. My memories of him was he was the person to go to for TV repairs when he worked at GE. He was always fun at the family picnics. He will be greatly missed by all his family. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

We spent summers with our Hughes grandparents in Nellysford for many years. Across the schoolyard was home of our great grandfather, great Aunts Ina Folsom and Ivy Hughes, Ina’s son Dickie, great uncle Talmadge, his sons Thomas and Kenny Hughes. I’m not sure, but was there another son named Jodie? We played at both houses and the school yard.
Tommy was the smartest one of us, and we enjoyed his company always. RIP dear Tommy. Sad day us.
